I suspect that the photo on the main page (a jumping person with a fat-looking costume and a hat) comes from the work you mention. It is called
"Groosland" and is by the French choreographer Maguy Marin. It was created in 1989, and I remember the Lyon Opera Ballet danced it a few years ago. I didn't see it, most of the reviews found it amusing, while some found it a bit offensive or tasteless. Maguy Marin is quite popular in France; I've only seen a few works by her and didn't like it much.
The rest of the program included Balanchine's "Capriccio" (Rubies), Robbins' "The Cage", and Ashton's "Symphonic Variations": that sounds quite interesting! Pity the Dutch National Ballet never tours to France, they seem to have an interesting repertory...
